    Our house can accommodate 24 children from 0 to 6 years of age, who have been subjected to a violation of their rights. Our objective is to reinsert them in a family, be it the biological family or an adoptive family. During their stay at the home we try to meet their physical as well as their emotional needs.

    To do this we have a team of 17 dedicated collaborators, who with love and professionalism are in charge of the many different tasks involved in providing integral care for our children. We also have a group of volunteers and students who cooperate in taking care of the children.

House for Children and Youths

The house is set up to receive 8 children, 7 years and older, who for different reasons cannot return to their biological family or be adopted. We aim to provide a stable family environment, with Christian values, so they may develop normally, study and achieve their potential in life. There’s no age limit, each youth leaves when they are capable of independent living.

The care of this group of children and youth is the charge of a team of 3 persons, who provide not only basic needs but also fulfill a parental role, being there to support, provide contention and guidance towards the goal of achieving independent living.

Our Achievements

    In 2014, we celebrated our 30th birthday. During this time we have cared for more than 1.800 children. Our main goal is to have these children return to a family-- biological or adoptive-- or our house, under our care. Many of them are now adults, professionals, and have formed families of their own. They have been able to break the vicious cycle of neglect and maltreatment that affected them. That is our most important achievement.

    During 2017 we renovated our entire power grid in the House for Infants and Preschoolers and improved our lighting system with modern LED-technology in the indoor and outdoor areas, we installed a brand new solar powered water system. We also developed an emergency plan which considers the structure of the house, safety training of our staff, new safety signs and several new emergency drills, to be prepared as best as possible in case of an emergency. We also organized training courses and self care sessions for our technical and professional team.

    By opening our house to visitors, presenting our Foundation in school communities, businesses and fund raising activities we have been able to motivate many people who are generously contributing to finance our work, benefitting the children.
